"The Tekoa Kid:"
Very thoughtful and cool of you to take the time to put the link up here; thank you. Do you mind if I ask what you mean by "just in from your backyard?" -- are you located over there? Thanks again, --- AshesRising

Actually I used to be a tour guide and had the keys to the tunnels of the mountain. Years ago, I would park my jeep next to the tunnel entrance and while my kids were playing hide and seek there,(pretty cool huh?) I would blast some tunes which would carry through the nearly 7 km. of tunnels.I had origionally strung speaker wire all around the mountain but it was swiped by locals...
Unfortunately all this violent bullshit broke out and for the last 5 years almost noone came to visit this place and I had to get a real job.....
If you look at my avatar at LL you will see me on top of the tomb...
I will be able to post some cool pics
later....

"The Tekoa Kid:"
....what a great story! - You actually wired the place and blasted tunes?! If, in my ignorance of all things electronic, you are just bustin' me with bs, well you've successfully get me good!
TTK: your post has the abbreviation "LL" -- I don't know what that means. Can you point me in the right direction so I can check it out?

Thanks a lot, --- AshesRising

(The only picture I can provide is something called the "Big Dig" back here in Boston, MA --- the most-costly public-works project ever in the USA. It is also one of mankind's top engineering debacles in all of recorded history.)
